Chitwan, Feb 25: Minister for Physical Planning and Infrastructures from Province-3, Keshav Sthapit, has said internal homework was underway to seek new place for its capital.
Talking to media persons here Sunday, Minister Sthapit said as Hetauda was not fit for the capital, proper place was being sought. He however said the name of the new place for province could not be revealed outright.
"If I make it public now, it creates problem," he said, giving a hint that the new place for the capital had the land covering seven lakh ropani and the forest in three lakh ropani. According to him, the new place for the capital is centrally located, so that it would not take more than four hours for the people from every distant part of Province to reach it.
The Minister argued that name of the place could not be revealed also because the land brokers would take advantage of the situation and plot it haphazardly.
Thirty important infrastructures would be created for the capital, he added.
